Please let me know where I was being political? I mentioned a reason the visa may have been limited and called it by what it is know as "Trump travel ban". I could have called it Executive Order 13769 but that may have been confusing. Again, please let me know where I was being political?

The year is 2021. Trump is not president. Ali Adnan played in the USA under a visa in 2020.

When I raised the fact that Trump is not president you stated: "Suggesting a visa issue for a visa issued during Trump's presidency  for a citizen of Iraq that would have been affected is good reasoning. Many you should try reasoning before playing politics."

Your Trump theory has been debunked and now you're saying this is an argument about "cooler presidents". Stated facts is not being political - you're projecting.

I don't think you understand what I wrote or you are arguing insincerely due to your politics. Either way, doesn't matter.

I read in a portuguese paper that the 'Caps and Ryan Gauld (Scottish guy) have agreed to terms o a 3 year contract.  The problem is that though Gauld and his agent claim they free to move, Farense  (his club) say that in February they activated a one year extension clause in his contract.

Gauld is claiming the extension clause is invalid, due to the team being relegated this season. 

Not sure how long this drags out.

Solid tie on the road vs LAFC that could have been a win. Caicedo has really been impressive recently and looked dangerous for most of the night. But having said that, Gutierrez should be taking more of the corners over Caicedo. Gutierrez with another nice free kick last night for 2nd goal, while Caicedo's corners were consistently poor.

Gauld announcement finally incoming.

So, the #10 is arriving. The team is returning to Vancouver with a lot of home games left. Time for MDS to show what he can do, as the excuses are coming to an end.

Looking forward to seeing what the trio of Gauld, Bikel, and Alexandre can do in this midfield.

Bikel has been a revelation the past couple of months. I thought he and Owusu were just squad filling bargain basement and bang average. Hope Alexandre and Owusu settle and follow suit.

Bikel has been like the Diego Chara of this side.  I would be surprised if he lost his place in the preferred starting eleven

Two things on this. First, good to see the Whitecaps actually do that it took to get it done - no dragging it out 90 days to avoid paying a fee, a fee that was minimal on the global scale. They helped the player out when they technically didn't have to. And second, damn glad Ryan didn't quit before signing based on all that border mess. But I think the first part is the kind of thing the Whitecaps have failed to do in the past, and that likely helped out with the second part.
